Summary Goddards is one of Sir Edwin Lutyens's most complete smaller houses. It was built in 1900 as a rest home for 'ladies of small means' and extended in 1910 to become a family house for the son of its original owner. This gives Goddards its remarkable shape and unique character. It is Lutyens's first symmetrical Arts and Crafts house, but it is notable also for the subtlety of his handling of materials and colours. Its magnificent garden designed by Gertrude Jekyll, with whom Lutyens frequently collaborated, is perfectly preserved and maintained, so that to the visitor the house and its setting appear largely as they did in the early part of this century. Goddards is now owned by the Lutyens Trust and has recently been opened to the public.
